Notes

Patch fix of shnid 20377

C>SHN Conversion by Cousinit

Patch Source:

Master AUD (Sony ECM-280/D-5) Cass> PCM> ZA2> CD > EAC > SHN(shnid 1955)

except for part of drums (see below), which was patched with the AUD audio source from the circulating DVD (no source info given).

The following corrections were made:

- all tracks put back in phase by reinverting left channel in CE 2K
- multiple dropouts, splices, etc. patched
- first three tracks of second electric set put at end of CD 2 to allow CD3 to fit on one disc. Disc change between CDs 2 and 3 is seamless.
- SBD from 1:32 of GDTRFB to end of the show is higher-pitched; this was corrected in CE Pro (stretched 100.383%) so speed and pitch matched the rest of the show. It sounds like it was either patched in from an alternate SBD or played back on a different deck.


Many thanks to Charlie Miller for his advice on determining which channel to reinvert. Thanks to Cousinit for the SBD source and his flaw notes, also mcole, Charles Weir, drgseeds and Deadhead for their SBD source comments and Charles (?) for his AUD source comment on the drums track. Last but not least thanks to Jim Wise for his excellent audience patch source, as well as to (?) for circulating the DVD of this show, which provided part of drums.

Subject: Great Night
'72 Bird Songs were boring, I saw several. early/mid-'80's Bird Songs are where it's at. Cole Field House '81 is the best and then there is every other version. This is a great acoustic version. Great show, I was there. This and the last night at the warfield were easily the two best electric sets from the October shows. this is the best source. I saw 330-plus shows from '72 to '93, 97% of them from '72-'86 and yes this is one of the best shows of the early '80's.

Subject: Best acoustic Bird Song
Jerry and the boys were summoning the vibe of the '72 Bird Songs during this performance. Brent also does some irresistible work on the keys. None of the other acoustic Bird Songs come close to this.

this may just be one of the greatest shows of all time. definitely for this time period

the Space> Fire is the one on the album "Dead Set"

Thank you for putting up this version of the show. The other ones were okay, a little too much crowd noise here and some weird EQ there, but whatever.

This copy, however, is about as good as it gets. Great shows, obviously they're up there in the pantheon of great Dead performances or least Dead milestones.

This is the one you want!
